Fight Like Jesus!

A five-week sermon series begins on Sunday, Jan. 22.

Fight like Jesus!? Is that a thing?

Most people seeking a few pointers for an upcoming boxing match probably wouldn’t turn to our Lord. Jesus excels at many things; mixed martial arts is not one of them.

On the other hand, Jesus does talk a lot about conflict.

Jesus tells story after story about family members who are at odds with each other. He acknowledges that forgiveness is hard for us. He also reminds his followers that anger can eat holes in our hearts. Jesus regularly challenges us to treat our neighbors with respect, and yes, he goes way out on a limb and commands that we love and pray for our enemies.

So yes, “fighting like Jesus” is a thing. Over the course of five Sundays, we will consider how our Christian faith can inform conflict.

What do you say? Got conflict in your life? Need a few pointers? Feeling uncertain about whether you even want to walk down a path that could lead to reconciliation? Well, friends, we’ve got a sermon series for you.

Come to church this winter and learn… to fight like Jesus!

See you in worship,

Scott Black Johnston
Senior Pastor
